Coach Amy’s Comments:
Happy Tuesday CGAC families! I hope that everyone had a wonderful and relaxing Thanksgiving. Here are some things you need to know for the upcoming week:
1.) PIKE: If you missed the RSVP deadline for the PIKE meet, please email me at AGcoach@cgacswim.org by 5:00pm Tuesday (11/28). We will be sending our initial entry Tuesday evening. Once the initial entry is sent, we can only make changes for those swimmers listed on that entry. If you have questions, please see your swimmer's coach.
2.) No Practice Tuesday, December 5th due to home High School meet. Come out and support your Trojan Swimmers and Divers as they take on the Whiteland Warriors. Meet starts at 6:00!
3.) Reminder: Please be sure to have your swimmers enter and exit the pool through the Hall of Excellence doors. This helps to keep our pool deck clean!
Have a great week and see you at the pool!
CGAC Club/Team Records - Check out the newly published team/individual club records now on the website here located under the "Team Information" tab. Our swimmers have set multiple age group records competing at the local, state, regional and national levels. Records are published by age group level beginning with the 6 and Under category through 17-18 year old swimmers. Team and individual records are available for both short course yards and long course meters. New or recent records achieved are highlighted in gold. We are proud of our swimmers’ accomplishments. Congratulations to all of our record holders past and current!
Meet Coordinator Update- I
have updated volunteer credits. Please check that yours are
accurate. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if I need to fix
You can check by logging in, clicking on My Invoice/Payment and then look for the service hours tab in the middle of the screen. Look for the row that says 10/2017 and it should list any jobs you have completed. If you scroll over, it will also show your balance.
Holiday Team Store – Don’t forget the CGAC flash store is open again for all your Holiday spirit wear needs and includes apparel with our NEW team logo. The store is open until 12/3. Additionally, if you want to order personalized caps, this is where you do it - https://mylogoshop.com/cgac/.
Ongoing Updates & Reminders
Swim Buddy Program: The swim buddy program was something new we tried this year to help our newer/younger swimmers competing in a swim meet to be paired up with a more experienced swimmer in their age group. If your swimmer would be interested in participating in this program or wants to be paired up for a future swim meet, please send an email to email@example.com.
College Swimming Information: On the website, under our 'Parent Info Page' we have added a 'College Swimming and Recruiting Timeline' page where you can find some helpful information about swimming in college. This page is a good place to start and provides links to different college eligibility sites, shows a recruiting timeline from Freshman year to Senior year, outlines what activities your swimmer can begin doing each year, what colleges can do and not do during certain times.
Samantha's House and Van Foundation Information: Please visit the Samantha's House and Van Foundation site here to read more about this wonderful organization and support a good cause and read about Coach Sam and her family! Information is also available on our website.
